Simcoe Late-Season Lakers – Just Match What They Are Feeding On

by March 11, 2013

lateseasonlakers-headerI made it out on Simcoe again.  It was a great weather day to boot which I typically never get the chance to enjoy.  The good weather days usually seem to fall on work days.

 

I headed out at 7 am for a great walk out searching for some lake trout.  I had two rods rigged up one with a Lunkerhunt Direct Contact and the other with a Lunkerhunt white pearl tube rigged on a Freedom Hydra jig head. There was no need for anything else today as the lakers were all over both presentations.   I was presenting them with what they are typically feeding on at this time of the year, smelts and herring.

 

 

I started out fishing as usual; off bottom and getting them to chase my lure up the water column once they show interest.  They just were not committing. I decided to hit them high; raised my direct contact up 20 feet from bottom and jigged up from there; all the way up to 20 feet below the ice.  This gave me 40′ to work with.  It was not work because the fish were quite active in this range; the chasers were all now committing. Every time they would chase it, I would have a fish on. All and all I had over 12 fish on my line, and managed to ice six.

 

Needless to say I had a great day; and think I should take more days off work. 😉
